Last month a friend of mine told me that he had resigned from his place of work. I was very shocked when I heard this. Ask me why. This particular friend of mine is a kind of person who doesn’t joke with his work. To show how dedicated he is to his work, instead of going to church on Sunday he would prefer going to work all in the name of emergency work.Last month a friend of mine told me that he had resigned from his place of work.

He told me painfully or regretfully that he voluntarily retired himself because what the owner of the company cared about is how they will move the business. After he had spoken with the owner of the company that he will be going for medical treatment and he needed some money for the treatment which means he will be absent from work for a month. After the talk the owner told him that if he should give him a lone of that amount that he is pleading for, his company will be at loss and his company cannot afford to spend anything without interest and since he will be on the hospital bed for a whole month, how will the company cope for that month… how will he pay back the loan.
That was when he realized that working for someone is a big curse especially in Nigeria because while you are focusing your strength, your time and effort on how the company will move forward and the owner of the company will also be focusing his strength and effort on how his company will move forward – since he his the owner of the business. What about his own business and family?
It pains me whenever I see some old retired workers complaining and protesting against government or some smart people that they should pay them their gratuity or their right because most of this old retired workers have use all their strength and time in serving the government for many years and what they get in return is an envelop containing “Retrenchment”
According to the experts, in order to prevent this unnecessary complain against those that are not ready to listen to listen to them. Retired workers or pensioners should play it smart by seeking for a pension management plan. Presently there are many pension management companies in Nigeria like IBTC and some other company that are actually helping people retire well and happy.
Or they should seek for alternative business for retired workers in Nigeria – business that can be done by retired workers in Nigeria. Business that will not require much of their time, at the same time will also help them gain financial freedom, within 2 – 5 years.
So, retired workers in Nigeria can now enjoy their life, gain financial freedom and live and healthy life since there are lots of business opportunities in Nigeria and the whole of Africa for retire old workers
